ON
When you are browsing a VSAM file, the leftmost side of the multiline displays contain the RBA and the length of the record being displayed.
OFF
The RBA and the length of the record being displayed are not displayed, allowing more of the record data to be displayed on the screen.
Note: The RBALEN command is only available when browsing a VSAM file within a Browse session. You can specify either ON or OFF, regardless of the setting of the Show RBA and Length when browsing VSAM option in the Editor Options panel. You can issue the command multiple times.
